Word Play: A Spoken Word Poetry Festival
Saturday, May 4 / 10am - 9:30pm
 
Join Gay City for Word Play, a one-day spoken word festival including two workshops, a performance, and an artists reception. Wordplay is a collaborative effort to explore recovery from a queer perspective. From alcoholism, to anorexia to mental illness, four poets from different recovery backgrounds will take the mic to speak truth about bottoming out, getting back up and moving on. 
 
The workshops will be led by featured artists, who will share their expertise and encourage participants to explore their own recovery experiences through spoken word. The festival will culminate in a performance by four local artists, followed by an artists reception.
 
Performers Include:
Cody Pherigo
Fabian Romero
Cecily Shuler
Cole Arden Peake
 
 
Sponsored by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
The Seattle Project
The Seattle Project is coming to Gay City Health Project May 9th.
 
Selections from The Seattle Project, a body of photographic work from Portland, Oregon based photographer, R. Edward Jack, will be presented at Gay City. The exhibition will commence with an artist reception on May 9th, from 6pm - 9pm, in the Calamus Auditorium at Gay City.
 
The Seattle Project, which began in 2001, is a collection of photographs that tell the stories of Pacific Northwest men who have faced significant challenges in their lives from serious health issues and death threats to their own self realizations. These men have offered their images to the Project to give hope and encouragement to others facing similar challenges.
 
The show will be hosted at Gay City Health through June 9th
